“It Takes a Village:” A Look at One Department’s Effort to Successfully Involve Its Faculty in the Important Process of Assessment

With assessment demands in higher education on the rise, the assessment process has become increasingly difficult for one or two faculty to manage. Through one department’s assessment journey, this symposium will address how assessment can be manageable if it involves all members of a department including the administrative assistant, the dean, and the faculty, as well as, how Live Text can be used as a tool to help streamline this process.

Improving Teaching and Learning: Curricular Mapping Solution

Curricular Mapping facilitates improvement in teaching and learning. Learning activities, assignments and rubrics are aligned to course learning outcomes (CLO’s). Faculty see whether CLO’s are measured by meaningful student learning activities/assessments. Incentivizing faculty to try different teaching and learning modalities increased scholarship of teaching projects and identification of best practices.
